Lightweight Portable Security - "US Air Force (Army) Linux" create your own USB drive


Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) creates a secure end node from trusted media on almost any Intel-based computer (PC or Mac). LPS boots a thin Linux operating system from a CD or USB flash stick without mounting a local hard drive. Administrator privileges are not required; nothing is installed. The ATSPI Technology Office created the LPS family to address particular use cases. LPS-Public is a safer, general-purpose solution for using web-based applications. The accredited LPS-Remote Access is only for accessing your organization's private network.


Download the LPS 1.2.2 deluxe ISO from here. Then put it on an USB thumbdrive (1 GB should do it!) with Unetbootin. Ubuntu users will find it in the distribution's repositories.

sudo apt-get install unetbootin

Windows and Mac OSX users will find it here! Resulting USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Apple Macs!).

Open the downloaded .ISO file (LPS-1.2.2_public_deluxe.iso) with Unetbootin.

Be sure your USB drive is selected before hitting the OK button.










Shutdown your computer and boot from your USB thumbdrive. On my Acer Travelmate Timeline X 8172 Z I have just to hit F12 key during POST.
WiFi connections is established without any problems.  Broadcom  BCM43225 802.11b/g/n wlan chip is well supported.

Have fun with Leightweight Portable Security.
